Launch of the second call for projects “Pain & Animal Health”

As the first research foundation in the field of pain, the ANALGESIA Institute is launching, for the 2nd consecutive year, the call for STARTER projects “Pain & Animal Health” granting €18,000, thanks to the renewed support of the Domes Pharma Group.

The field of pain has remained on the margins of the great medical advances of the last 50 years. To meet this major challenge, the ANALGESIA Institute has applied itself to reviving innovation in this field by relying on the One Health concept: a single health for humans and animals. By bringing doctors and veterinarians together, this approach proposes a new R&D model that is inspired by the patient, whether it’s human or animal, to finally offer new treatments that will benefit both humans and animals.

A long-standing player in the veterinary pharmaceutical industry in France, the Domes Pharma Group has put the quality of the relationship between humans and animals at the heart of its vision. By partnering with the ANALGESIA Institute, the Group’s objective is to ensure that the knowledge, consideration and treatment of animal pain, (the existence of which has only been truly accepted since the 1980s) can also benefit from the latest research advances.

The Domes Pharma Group’s commitment, to the ANALGESIA Institute, is formalized  by the renewal of the “ANALGESIA – Domes Pharma Pain and Animal Health” award, which will be granted on the basis of a call for projects.

This important support allows the ANALGESIA Institute to commit even further to innovation in pain management for the benefit of the veterinary world over the long term. 

For this 2nd edition, the ANALGESIA Institute will grant  funding of 18,000 euros. This amount is intended to help an academic team wishing to develop a research theme on pain in animal health to acquire or complete preliminary results that will then allow it to apply for competitive calls for projects (national grant, H2020…). In 2019, the prize was awarded to a Franco-Brazilian study project that evaluated different physiotherapy methods for the immediate relief of myofascial pain in dogs.

The call for projects is open to all academic teams (French or not), who conduct research in this field.


  • Launch of the call of projects: April 20, 2020
  • Deadline for sending applications: June 26, 2020 at noon      
  • Award ceremony: Autumn 2020
